WDW Radio Show #69 – Star Wars Weekends Planning Roundtable, Hidden Mickeys

Star Wars Weekends Planning Roundtable, Hidden Mickeys, Walt Disney World News, WDW Rumor Mill, Emails and voicemails

Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. Thank you for tuning in once again. This is show #69 for the week of June 1, 2008. I am your host Lou Mongello, coming to you this and every week bringing you the very best ways to enjoy and enhance your Walt Disney World vacation experience.

In this week’s Walt Disney World News, I’ll discuss a new marathon coming to Walt Disney World in 2009, another way to bring some Disney magic to your iPod, and a new set of DVDs coming from Imagineering this Fall.

My visit to the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill hints at a new way to purchase Disney theme park items right from home, parade changes coming to the Magic Kingdom, and possible confirmation of the Star Tours rumors.

Speaking of Star Tours, Star Wars Weekends begins on June 6 and runs through the month, so I wanted to discuss the events, the different elements that make up each weekend, and how to get the most out of them, whether you are a Star Wars superfan or not. So I brought in George “Darth Sidious” Taylor and Glenn “Grand Moff Tarkin” Whelan to pull up a chair in the Cantina and join me in a roundtable discussion about the weekends.

Steve Barrett and I trek through Conservation Station and Rafiki’s Planet Watch hunting Hidden Mickeys, including the elusive one that can be found on a live animal as well.

I’ll answer some more of your emails this week, including questions on Illuminations, the Epcot 25 Exhibit, strollers and more.

Listen for more voicemails at the end of the show, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
